For the second consecutive year, Scranton’s MBA program was listed among the top 15 in the nation for general management in the “Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools” published by Entrepreneur magazine and The Princeton Review.

     The University of Scranton Kania School of Management was named among the top 15 in the nation for general management in the “Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools” list published in the April 2010 edition of Entrepreneur magazine and The Princeton Review. This is the second year of the annual ranking and the second year The University of Scranton has been listed.

     The “Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools” recognizes MBA programs with highest scores in six key categories of success based on a survey of the students attending the schools. Only 15 schools are listed in each of the following categories: accounting, finance, general management, global management, marketing and operations.

     The 2010 lists recognize just 59 graduate schools of business in the country, and include such prestigious universities as Harvard, Stanford, Yale and Dartmouth. Scranton is among just four Jesuit universities recognized, which are Boston College, Loyola University New Orleans, Georgetown University and The University of Scranton.

     The Princeton Review compiled the lists from data gathered from its national survey of 19,000 MBA students attending schools profiled in the Best 301 Business Schools guidebook. The 80-question survey asked students to report on classroom and campus experiences at their schools and rate their MBA programs in several areas. The Princeton Review compiled the Student Opinion Honors lists based on students’ assessments of how well they felt their business school courses had prepared them in each of the six areas.

     “We commend the schools on these lists for the outstanding job they are doing in preparing their students to apply their MBA training beyond the classroom to successful job searches and productive careers,” said Robert Franek, senior vice president and publisher of The Princeton Review.

     The University of Scranton’s Kania School of Management has been included in the Princeton Review’s Best 301 Business Schools for five consecutive years. Scranton has also been listed in the Princeton Review’s undergraduate guidebook, The Best 371 Colleges, for eight consecutive years. In addition, for the past 16 years, Scranton has been ranked among the top 10 master’s universities in the North by U.S.News & World Report and, this year, ranked third among schools with a “Strong Commitment to Teaching” and fourth among the top  “Up and Coming” schools in the nation.

Scranton’s MBA program is accredited by AACSB International, the most recognized and respected business school accrediting body.
